It takes a lot of amazing people to run Scotland’s biggest nightclub, from HQ staff and club management to DJ’s, bartenders, sound and light technicians, glass collectors and cleaners.

LIANNE

General Manager

✉ lianne@hfents.com

BIO

I have worked with the company for 8 years, starting in the Tunnel Nightclub. First, I worked on the bar before working my way up to management. 5 years ago I transferred to The Garage and have continued to expand my experience as General Manager.  Most of my experience has come from working for Hold Fast Entertainment.

Favourite Music

I enjoy many styles of music but I do love a good 80’s playlist. Especially on a night out!

Top Destinations

I enjoy seeing new places and love trying different types of food. Thailand was a beautiful place that I visited not long ago! My next trip will be to Las Vegas and Miami! Hopefully I can see the Grand Canyon by helicopter when I go.

Team Garage: Iain - General Manager at The Garage Glasgow

IAIN

General Manager

✉ iain@hfents.com

Bio

I’ve been a manager at The Garage since 2013. Previously, I studied Commercial Music at UWS before going onto manage and DJ at various places. I’ve had a couple of failed attempts at “making it” in a band over the years, which has naturally led to me dealing with a lot more of the live music related matters within the venue.

Favourite Music

I like everything, when I say that I like everything (within reason) then I really mean it. Love everything from classical to Neil Young to Limp Bizkit. Also love watching the Glasgow music scene go from strength to strength. Favourite band of all time though would have to be Jimmy Eat World.

Top Destinations

Most of my trips tend to be to USA. Been to Wrestlemania twice and planning to go back again soon!

I have worked in The Garage since I was 18. For the past 2 years, I’ve been an Assistant Manager. Before that, I worked my way up on the bar.

Favourite Music

I will listen to pretty much anything, except from heavy metal/screaming bands. I don’t quite understand that style of music.

Indie with a wee slice of pop-punk and techno dunked nicely in house.
